FAQ

If you are setting up the device and you are asked to provide the 8-digit pin code, please click "Connect the network without setting it up" to avoid the pin code. Please refer to the attached file. This window should appear right before the pin code window.

Please understand that sometimes a wireless repeater is slower for those connecting to the network using it. This is because it uses the same radio/frequency (2.4GHz) to accept incoming and outgoing packets from clients as it does to forward those packets on to the next wifi router and accept replies. So effectively you get half the bandwidth, as each packet must go over the air twice - from the client to the repeater, then from the repeater to the wifi router. This should be the industry standard with almost all repeaters. However, it will not affect anyone directly connected to the original wifi router (other than from having to share it among more people). So if you are in range of the wifi router and so connect to it rather than the repeater, you will get normal performance. That being said, the HooToo device in Repeater Mode splits its wireless bandwidth to "talk" with both your wireless router and your computer. Therefore its peak throughput (NOT average throughput) will be lower compared with AP-Bridge, AP-Router or Client Mode. For most people who rarely hit peak wireless bandwidth, Repeater Mode may still be the most convenient choice. For those who constantly use media streaming or real-time network gaming, we instead recommend AP-Bridge mode to expand the wireless network with less impact to peak performance.

Please follow the steps below:
1.reset your repeater(press the reset button until all the light off and wait them on)
2.Connect the repeater to your laptop with a network table
3.Disable the wireless adapter

 

 

4.Open a new browser window, and enter the address below:192.168.10.1

 

If you can’t access the address, open your Network & Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings (or Manage Network Connections).
A.Select your Ethernet card and then select properties. The "connection properties" window will appear.

 

B. In this window, double-click "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)." The IP setting dialog will appear.

 

Type in the following settings:
IP address: 192.168.10.X (where ‘x’ is between 2~255)
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway/Router: 192.168.10.1
Note: Do not change DNS settings
c. Click "OK" and wait a few seconds to allow the new settings to apply.
d. Access the address:192.168.10.1 again
5.choose Setup wizard - wireless repeater mode- next, wait it refresh

 

6.Select your router, enter the key and choose “save&reboot”

 

7.Enable your wireless adapter and pull the cable

 

8.Connect the repeater via wifi, right click it, choose properties

 

9.Enter your current router’s password - ok

First off I would recommend you to reset the device (when it's powered on, hold the reset button until the second indicator is off) and then set it up once again. Please understand that to identify the wall socket where you would like to place the HooToo device is of great importance. For instance, install the repeater halfway between your router and the deadspot. Please Ensure that your desired location has a stable Wi-Fi signal from your original router. Note that >80% signal strength is ideal.

1. When you connect to the repeater(WiFirepeater-1), login 192.168.10.1
2. Choose "Wireless" in the left-side list -> Basic settings
3. Here you can change your SSID -> Apply Changes

Can I have two of these connected to the same network? I bought it and it is working, but seems I would need another one to cover other area
A: You may need two if your area is a wide range and has solid masonry or other type of construction. There may be a dead zone that you need to cover.

I assume this gizmo plugs directly into a wall outlet for power. It picks up a\ the signal coming from your router and retransmits same?
A: Yes it does. You must configure it but the setup is fairly straightforward if you've configured a wireless router before.

does it work with Comcast ARMIS routers?
A: I don't have Comcast. The best I can do is answer like this: The definition of a router is that it has ethernet ports and it can also be wireless. The Hootoo can plug into an ethernet port and be used as a wireless access point OR it can function as a repeater where it receives a wireless signal and rebroadcasts it to get you more range. In other words the Hootoo can do just about anything and it has all kinds of settings and it should be compatible with ANYTHING that can even be called a router. Comcast would have to have done something incredibly screwy to the router in order to have made it incompatible with something like the Hootoo Access Point/Wireless Repeater and I can't imagine anything they could possibly have done and still get away with calling the box they gave you a router. I'm real good with that stuff and I wouldn't hesitate to order it if I were in your position, but I'm sorry; without having Cable and that router, and knowing Comcast the way I know them, I don't think anyone could tell you it'll work for absolutely sure. But with the right settings, it's virtually guaranteed to work. See my review; it can be a little tricky for a novice to set up.

I'm using a Linksys Wireless Router. So if I'm understanding this correctly I should be able to plug this into a wall outlet approx 40 feet away from the Linksys wifi router and expect that the HT-WR01 will pick up the signal (just like my devices that already connect wirelessly) boost it, and transmit a stronger signa…
A: The simple answer is yes. The more detailed answer is 1) There might be some reason why the HT-WR01 is not compatible with your specific router. 2) Study the review of Philip Lochner. When first powered up, the HT-WR01 appears as a new access point with a new name that repeats the contents of the original access point. Philip gives instructions on how to set up the HT-WR01 so that it repeats the contents using the same name as the original access point.

will this work with a Cradlepoint MRB95 Router?
A: Probably. It connected easy. I am disappointed with the repeatability of the unit though. I would opt for something better.

what is the range in feet?
A: I'm not really sure what it is. I have an older style home (Gambrel) that does not have an open floor plan. I have a TV, media player & the router from the cable co. on one end of the house, and I also have a TV & media player on the end of the house near the HooToo. I could not get very good signal with another companies repeater. That's why I bought the HooToo because it was supposed to have a better range and I noticed a big difference in signal strength with the HooToo. I'm very happy with it. I hope that helps.

How do you access hootoo setup wizard after the reboot? Step 8 in the user manual.
A: You don't really need to access the wizard after the reboot. Everything that has to do with your setup should all be done at the moment you actually setup the unit. I personally never had to go back in for anything once it was setup. However, if for whatever reason you need to access the admin page; start over, by pushing the reset button on the side of the machine. Do your entire setup including names and and everything. Open the browser page Http://192.168.10.1, when it prompts for User & Password by default they're Admin, Admin. Find your wireless network in your home and select it and put in your security parameters. I would keep the default name for the repeater and just change the the user and password settings for security reasons. Once all that's done you save and reboot and that's it. You don't really need to go back in and change anything. Once the prompt appears to actually connect to the repeater under your network settings you used the same password/key as your wireless network. That's it your done.
